It’s October, so it’s not only pumpkin season, but also Halloween season! So say hello to these cuties aka. Halloween owl cupcakes. Aren’t they just super adorable?! Plus, they’re vegan, incredibly chocolatey, and pretty easy to make!
It might sound weird, but I actually feel kinda bad about eating them. Haha! I mean they look so cute you just don’t wanna ruin them. Even as a kid I wouldn’t eat my chocolate Easter bunnies but keep them for months until someone of my family finally asked if they could eat them. Or even worse, they’d just go bad in one of my cupboards…
We had so much fun decorating these owl cupcakes. We don’t have kids yet, but I’m sure they’d love making them too. I’d sure gone crazy about these when I was a kid! I mean who doesn’t love cute-looking owls, right?! They’re also great for kids birthday parties, school events, or cake sales.
So all you need to make these vegan owl cupcakes are some chocolate muffins or cupcakes, Oreos, skittles, and a little bit of creativity. You can also use other yellow and orange candies, such as M&Ms, but skittles were the only vegan ones I could think of. I think it could also work with food coloring, but I haven’t tried this yet.
Start by coating the chocolate muffins or cupcakes with melted dark chocolate. Then carefully separate the Oreos with a knife and press the halves with the filling onto the melted chocolate to make the eyes. Use yellow skittles for the eyeballs. Again be careful not to break the Oreos. Then make a little hole between the eyes with a knife and add an orange candy nose in the middle. Then cut ears out of the leftover Oreo halves and tuck them into the top of each chocolate muffin behind the eyes. Put the first one on the melted chocolate and the second one on top of the first one. Use some more melted chocolate to glue them together. That’s it!
I know these Halloween owl cupcakes don’t like very scary like so many other Halloween treats. I love them as cute owls, but if you want them to look scarier, you could also use green or red skittles instead of yellow ones. This way you get evil Halloween owls. Haha!
So either way, I hope you like these vegan Halloween treats. Have a great weekend, everyone!
